Koktokay scenic spot in China's Xinjiang

 

Located in the Altai Mountains, Northeast of Fuyun county in Xinjiang, Koktokay Scenic Spot, or Koktokay National Geopark, is an ideal place for sightseeing, vacationing, hiking, photographing and scientific expedition. It is the origin of the Irtysh River, which is the only river in China flowing into the Arctic Ocean. Near the river is the "No. 3 pegmatite", the largest mining pit in the world which has deposits of 84 kinds of minerals. Koktokay means "green forest" in Kazakh language and "blue river bend" in Mongolian, implying that it has been a beautiful place since ancient times.

The geopark consists of four major parts: the Irtysh Grand Canyon, Cocoa Sullivan Lake, Ilaymu Lake and Kalaxianger Earthquake Fault Zone. In the Irtysh Grand Canyon, the giant granites in various shapes are distributed along the turbulent Irtysh River. Springs, falls and brooks lie among the white birch forests and grassland. Hiking or riding a horse, visitors could enjoy the natural scenery of the canyon.

Covering an area of 178 hectares, Cocoa Sullivan Lake, also named Wild Duck Lake, is 23 kilometers away from the gate of the geopark. Plenty of aquatic plants and more than 20 floating islands in the lake attract thousands of wild ducks, moorhens and swan gooses every year.
